Wedding Photos Crabbs Barn – Victoria & Lee

Victoria and Lee chose the splendid Crabbs Barn for their Wedding.  Crabbs Barn looked a picture as we arrived, enhanced by the beautiful day.  After taking some detail pictures in the Barn, we waited the arrival of Victoria….and waited… and waited….. Despite leaving home early an accident had closed the A12 so this was the day for the detour! When Victoria did arrive she only needed to get into her dress and have final touch ups of make-up and hair.  Lee was not far behind,  so we just had to slow him down a bit! Victoria and her Bridesmaids calmly got on with dressing whilst Lee, his Bestman and Ushers were having some pictures taken. Once Victoria was ready,  we had time to take a few pictures of her with her Bridesmaids and Parents before her interview with the Registrars. Victoria being escorted by her Dad and Bridesmaids entered the Barn for the Wedding Ceremony, with the music provided by Timeless Acoustic.

We spent a few minutes with Victoria and Lee for their pictures, just before they were showered in rose petals and they all went in for the Wedding Breakfast .Essex Wedding Photographer at Crabbs Barn During the Wedding Breakfast the Speeches took place as well as Spencer putting on a short show. After the Wedding Breakfast the Guests socialised in the evening sunshine around the grounds.  We made use of the beautiful evening and took Victoria and Lee for a short walk in the lane.

Wedding Photography Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon for Victoria & Antony

Wedding Photography Crabbs Barn – Crabbs Barn was the chosen Venue for Victoria and Antony’s Wedding.  With the amount of rain we had in the morning we were so pleased it had all disappeared before we arrived at Crabbs Barn later on in the day.  At the Bridal Suite preparations were going well.  The Bridesmaids, Flowergirl and Pageboys stepped outside the room for a moment so we could photograph Vickies dress which they were not allowed to see until it was on! Afterwards they finished getting ready and when Vicky was ready we captured some lovely moments when they saw her dressed.
